    So Generation VI is coming up, and with it brand new Pokémon. There have been lots of speculation talk and hopes for the next generation of Pokémon, and everyone seems to have their own ideas they'd like to share. So in this competition, each contestant will pour their creativity and artistic talent into designing their own Fakemons!

    Firstly, the rules:
    1) If you wish to participate, you are to say so in this thread before the deadline.
    2) There will be multiple rounds in this competition, and you must make a completely different Fakemon for each round.
    3) Once the signups close, I will make a new thread for round 1, each competitor is advised to reserve a post on that thread, non competitors are not allowed to post in said thread until all participants have reserved a post.
    4) After the deadline for round 1 has passed (One week) I will make another thread with a poll so the community may vote for a person to move on to the next round, this is a community based competition and anyone is allowed to vote, excluding the participants.
    5) There is no limit to what you can use to create your Fakemon, it can be hand drawn or created on a program like MS Paint, Photoshop, and so on.


    Now, on to the template, categories in red are mandatory, categories in blue are optional but can potentially be used as an advantage over those who don't have it:
    Name: The name of your Fakemon
    Image: The image of your Fakemon (Hand drawings don't have to be scanned, a photo of it with a camera will do)
    Type: You Fakemon's typing
    Abilities: Your Fakemon's Ability/Abilities
    Base Stats: Your Fakemon's Base Stats
    Notable moves and/or moveset(s): Notable moves that the Fakemon knows (Can be new moves, give a description) and/or competitive move set(s) it might run
    Evolutions and Evolutionary methods: If it evolves at all
    Tiering: A brief description on the Fakemon's competitive tiering
    Background: A brief description on your Fakemon's background (Like Pokédex entries etc.)
    Inspiration: Like background, but describes what compelled you as an artist to create this Fakemon.

    You are also encouraged to put these categories in their own Hide tags, to avoid spamming the thread.

    With that said, avoid creating Legendary Pokémon, if you can, as those tend to go all over the place, but it's not completely discouraged, your creativity is what matters after all.

    To those who are not participating and intend on voting, you are to judge the Fakemon by their creativity, design, and any other aspect you see fit (Competitive value, or maybe you like their name etc.). Also, don't make subjective votes, try to be professional and not let your personal feelings toward a person affect your voting, this is the downside to community based competitions I'd like to avoid.


    Signups will last for one week starting now, so it will end Thursday, July 18th at 6PM GMT +7 (Feel free to translate that into your timezone because I'm lazy).
    We'll start with 12 participants first, but may increase if more people would like to join.

    Can I create a Fakemon with existing (though non-official sprites)?

    If yes, don't carry on without writing me as a last minute participant/participant No. 17. (though I have submitted/made this post near 03:48AM in your timings)!

    :cool:

    No, it has to be original.
